ABSTRACT- This study aimed to evaluate, under field conditions, different combinations between ‘Pera’
sweet orange and eight rootstocks: ‘Rangpur’ lime (RL), ‘Volkamer’ lemon (VL), ‘Cleopatra’ mandarin
(CM), ‘Sunki Maravilha’ mandarin (SMM), ‘Indio’ and ‘Riverside’ citrandarins, and VL x RL (‘Rangpur’
lime)-010 and TH-051 hybrids. The soil water matric potential (Ѱm) was characterized for all scion-rootstock
combinations at distance of 1.0m from the trunk at the plant row direction and depths of 0.25 m, 0.50 m 0.90
m in the dry and wet seasons. For two years, fruit production parameters and fruit quality were assessed.
Differences of Ym among scion-rootstock combinations were observed during the dry season (p≤0.05). The
lowest Ym values for RL and the highest for TH-051 indicate the existence of different intrinsic mechanisms
affecting the water extraction of each scion-rootstock combination. Rootstocks have influenced fruit yield
and quality (p≤0.05). The best combinations for fruit quality and production were sweet orange grafted on
‘Riverside’, ‘Indio’ and TH-051 rootstocks.
Index terms: Citrus, matric potential, drought tolerance, rootstock.



RESUMO- Este trabalho objetivou avaliar, em condição de campo, combinações entre a copa laranjeira
‘Pera’ e oito diferentes porta-enxertos: limoeiro ‘Cravo’ (LCR), limoeiro ‘Volkameriano’ (LVK), tangerineira
‘Cleópatra’ (CLEO), tangerineira ‘Sunki Maravilha’ (TSKMA), citrandarins ‘Indio’ e ‘Riverside’, híbridos
LVK x LCR (limoeiro ‘Cravo’)-010 e HTR (híbrido trifoliado)-051. Foi estimado o potencial matricial do solo
(Ѱm) para todas as combinações copa-porta-enxerto na posição a 1,0 m do tronco, na linha de plantas, nas
profundidades de 0,25 m, 0,50 m e 0,90 m, nos períodos secos e úmidos. Durante dois anos, foram avaliadas
a produção e a qualidade dos frutos. Foram observadas diferenças entre as combinações copa-porta-enxertos
em relação ao Ѱm (p≤0,05) apenas para o período seco. O menor valor de Ѱm para limoeiro ‘Cravo’ e o
maior para o HTR (híbrido trifoliado)-051 indicaram a existência de diferentes mecanismos intrínsecos de
cada combinação estudada que influenciaram na extração de água do solo, na posição avaliada. Em relação
à produção e à qualidade de frutos, os porta-enxertos ‘Riverside’, ‘Indio’ e HTR (híbrido trifoliado)-051
destacaram-se como as melhores combinações com a laranjeira ‘Pera’.
Termos para indexação: Citros, potencial mátrico, tolerância à seca, porta-enxertos.
